Corbin Police are asking for the public’s help to find the individuals who broke into Sav-Rite Pharmacy in Corbin Sunday morning and made off with a bin full of narcotics.

Corbin Police Detective-Lt. Rusty Hedrick said the two masked individuals are believed to be white males, one about 6 feet tall and weighing over 300 pounds and the other about 5’8”.

Video shows the men pulling up in a black Range Rover SUV with tinted windows and gray spoke rims about 7 a.m.

After circling in the parking lot, the vehicle pulls in crossways in the parking lot just feet from the door. The larger man jumps out of the driver’s seat and goes to the door where he uses a crowbar to pry it open.

The other man, who has been waiting with the back seat door open, jumps out with a blue Rubbermaid tote and enters the store while the driver remains outside on lookout.

Hedrick said the driver has a walkie-talkie in his hand and is seen on video using it several times.

“We think there may have been a third individual involved serving as a lookout somewhere nearby,” Hedrick said.

Video inside the store shows the other man busting open a locked cabinet containing narcotics and cleaning it out into the tote.

“He is in and out in about three minutes,” Hedrick said.

Once outside, the men jump back into the vehicle and drive off east on Masters Street toward U.S. 25E.

The license plate, even the state, is not visible in the video.

Hedrick said his investigation has turned up three similar burglaries within the last three months.

The first occurred on Jan. 7 in Florence, Ala.

The second occurred in Clarksville, Tenn. on Feb. 4.

The most recent was Feb. 26 in Lexington.

In January 2014, Stephanie’s Down Home Pharmacy was burglarized in a similar manner.

The getaway vehicle in that burglary was a Chrysler 300 with spoked wheels.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Corbin Police at 528-1122. Callers may remain anonymous.
